Navigation

Along the left side of the screen is a navigation bar that can be used to filter the links. The filtering occurs on the tag attribute of the links. For example, when the 'favorite' tag is selected, only the links with the 'favorite' tag attribute will be shown.

A nav filter is defined as:

  • name: The name displayed in the UI
  • tag: the tag name to filter links with
  • icon: the font-awesome name of the icon to display

Example of a menu definition in main config file.

[[ params.nav ]]
name = "favorites"
tag = "favorite"
icon = "star"

[[ params.nav ]]
name = "search"
tag = "search"
icon = "search"

[[ params.nav ]]
name = "shopping"
tag = "shopping"
icon = "shopping-basket"

[[ params.nav ]]
name = "music"
tag = "music"
icon = "headphones"
